"WBPQ" is the CW-affiliated television station for Northern Maine. The call letters are fictional as it is a cable-only station. It broadcasts exclusively on cable as part of The CW Plus. The station can be seen on Time Warner Cable channel 13.

Before becoming a CW affiliate, the station was a WB affiliate via The WB 100+ and was branded as "Presque Isle's WB". The WB 100+ was a similar cable-only operation as the current CW Plus service. On September 18, 2006, WBPQ switched to The CW after UPN and The WB closed down and merged. On The CW's local station website, it lists Presque Isle as having a CW affiliate and directs viewers to check local television listings. At one point, it was possible for CBS affiliate WAGM-TV which broadcasts over-the-air to replace its secondary UPN affiliation with The CW or add it on a new digital subchannel. Those options did not happen as WAGM chose instead to launch the area's Fox affiliate on its first subchannel.
